Job Description

Home Based - Managing a team across Scotland

Macmillan are seeking an experienced community engagement professional to provide expert management and leadership to the engagement team to ensure that Macmillan’s community engagement work delivers meaningful outcomes for people living with cancer.

You’ll enable communities across Scotland to influence new service developments by managing an engagement team and working with people affected by cancer, in line with Macmillan’s community engagement framework.

You’ll plan, deliver and evaluate community engagement activity, facilitate conversations around cancer care and patient experience and co-produce solutions to local health inequalities.

It’s particularly important that you demonstrate significant operational or project management skills and have a sound knowledge of best practice standards for community engagement. You will also have significant experience of managing a team, demonstrating strong leadership and effective communication skills.

And what do we offer you in return? We’ll commit to your personal development and offer staff benefits including a private medical insurance, life assurance, pension, childcare vouchers, generous leave and gym membership.

You’ll be joining a talented team of staff and volunteers committed to ensuring no one in Scotland faces cancer alone.

The role is home based, but involves regular travel across Scotland and occasional travel across the UK. Some evening and out-of-hours work will also be required.

We have exciting plans for our community engagement work and your leadership will be pivotal in delivering meaningful outcomes for people living with cancer.
